This was better than the rhubarb pie at our fav restaurant that we love! I made my own whole wheat flour pie crust that was a cooking light adapted recipe and subbed in a frozen berry blend for the raspberry a with blackberry brandy substitution too. I didn't have tapioca so I used more cornstarch and drained some if the juice from the frozen fruit after defrosting. I also halved the fruit compote since other reviewers said they had more filling than the pie could hold. We all wanted 2nd and 3rds so next time I will use the whole amount of fruit filling. It really was fabulous!
Refrigerated pie dough makes preparing this tasty dessert a snap. Cornstarch and tapioca ensure a velvety filling by thickening the fruit juices. Serve this raspberry-rhubarb pie with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
